Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany Wednesday night.
In an interview with German daily Die Welt published on Wednesday, the prime minister expressed disappointment with Germany for having abstained from the United Nations vote to recognize the Palestinians as a non-member observer state, rather than vote against the measure.
"First of all I appreciate the support of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the German government during the Gaza operation,
but at the same time, it would be disingenuous if I would deny that I
was disappointed with German voting behavior at the United Nations,"
Netanyahu told Die Welt.
